Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

Somewhere around 15

Went on a low calorie diet for two months. Less than 900 was the goal. However, the last couple of month with the kids have been difficult. Starter riding my bike for 1.5 hours a day. Well see if this helps.

Watching the calories works well, but you really have to count and if you stop start back right away. Make sure the calories you do have are healthy foods.

Works, but have to be dedicated.

Ugh... 10 lbs still

My kids got me a Wi Fit for my birthday. I have been walking three to five times a week 4-7 miles each time. I don’t think I am eating right, but I feel like I have a little more energy this month.

I felt silly standing in front of the TV jogging with cartoons, but to be honest after 30 minutes of running I was sweating. Well, I feel healthier, but it would be nice if the weight would start to leave…

Any metabolizing secrets would be great.

Best Wishes,

Cut the calories

Well four day of calorie counting 1100 less calories, and 3 days of walking/fast 4 miles each day. I forgot to get on the scale but progress
